Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
I ask because literally 10 of the 11 Notre Dame defenders were blocked - everyone but the backside DE. I looked back at Brown's 90 yarder against Eastern from last year and, besides being against Eastern, a lot of Eagles took themselves out of the play. Against Notre Dame, Denard found a hole before it existed, and then had GREAT downfield blocking, including the double pancake by Omameh.
Any lessons in Michigan football history are encouraged.
Not finished but thought I would share this painting of Denard I am working on.
Update....still have some work to do but getting closer
Freakin' love this guy, just for the effort and the heart.
Little article I wrote in regards to all the fuss about Denard and his workload.
Denard has no cable; so he doesn't listen to the ESPN and the Big Ten Network to how good he is.
So i was out wearing my michigan stuff, and i was approached by a kid who told me he was a recent illinois alum. and i have to say, i was rather enlightened by our conversation. among the many bombs he dropped on me, a few notable ones were:
"I f'ing hate michigan"
"The students at Illinois hate michigan more than you guys hate OSU"
"me and all my friends wear Muck Fichigan shirts"
First of all...your cool. Second of all, am i the only one who didnt realize that there was a michigan/illinois rivalry. if i had to list our rivals in order (among our regular opponents) it would probably be something like this:
Minn (yeah its got a trophy but come on)
Honestly id put nebraska ahead of illinois and we havent even played them yet. illinois fans should spend there energy hating indiana and Minn, since those are the games that will decide the big10 basement.
